Craft Beer Review: Blonde Ambition from Samuel Adams

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and you are reading The Beer in Review. Today's craft beer review is for Blonde Ambition from Samuel Adams.

Share It!

This beer was light and resinous with a woody sort of chrysanthemum bitterness. If that makes sense. There was less caramel than the Boston Lager and more liquorice. Very fresh and aromatic yet very American. The hops in American beers are very distinctive.  

It was thrrrrillling to see this beer at our Friday night pub. I've had the Sam Adams Boston Lager on many ocaisions and this is the first opportunity I've had to try another of their beers. Not being in the States, American beers are rare on tap at regular little local pubs like ours.

I just noticed now the detail on the pump clip of the boats, presumably in Boston harbour? This is actually very appropriate to our area which is on the Thames. Bear and I go sailing this time of year. There must be a story there to go with the beer but I don't have time this morning to look it up.
